Cartel Hour by Cask Cartel 18: Deal with the Devil - Blood Oath and Daviess County with John Rempe
Play • 1 hr 7 min

What happens when you make a deal with the devil? John Rempe knows, as his bourbon series Blood Oath has consistently sold out upon each new release, including the most recent, pact 6. As a master distiller, he makes that pact directly with his consumers: to pour his soul into each blend, creating something brand new while honoring old world bourbon.


We also chatted with John about the relaunch and rebranding of the historic brand Daviess County that dates back to 1874, as well as explore the relaunch of the Ezra Brooks line with Old Ezra and its new 7 year age statement, all now under the Lux Row Distilling family.
